  • Labour Migration from Nepal-Factsheet: Saudi Arabia

    Published by: CESLAM and Foreign Employment Board

    The Gulf countries in general, and Saudi Arabia in particular, have emerged as the prime destination for Nepali migrants. Although there is no record of the first arrival of Nepali migrants in Saudi Arabia, it can be presumed from available data that Nepalis migrated to Saudi Arabia much earlier than 1990 for the Nepali migrant population in Saudi Arabia to have reached close to 200,000 by that year, which is from when data is available. The number of Nepali migrants has grown consistently thereafter to reach nearly half a million in 2017.

The share of Nepali migrants in the migrant population in Oman is very small, constituting less than 1 per cent of the total migrant population in Oman.

  • Labour Migration from Nepal-Factsheet: Malaysia

    Published Date: 2019

    Published by: CESLAM and Foreign Employment Board

    A total of USD 6 billion is remitted out of Malaysia every year, and Nepal receives a little less than USD 200 million or 3 per cent of the total remittances sent out of Malaysia. The amounts remitted are, of course, only calculated estimates as there is no accounting of the true volume of remittances because migrant workers make use of various forms of informal networks to send money home and also because a considerable proportion of workers’ earnings also comes into Nepal as consumer items such as TV sets and mobile phones.
